"morning joe." now time for "the daily rundown". >>> big disappointment on the job front. employment stalled, unemployment rises to 9.2%, stock futures dropping big-time on the news. the president will address the numbers later this morning. >>> no deal yet, but president obama and congressional leaders will work all weekend and instead of barbs we're hearing words like "constructive" and "productive." optimism abounds as a deal is truly in the works. both sides seem prepared for seergs concessions. what do these jobs numbers mean and will they hold up a deal as it gets rid of a lot of other issues at this point? >>> and with outside groups set to pour millions into the 2012 race, what's an incumbent pro president to do? is fighting fire with fire the answer? it's friday, june 8, 2012. >>> also this morning, waiting the final shuttle launch. will weather clear in time? and we've honored a departed friend you've invited into your living rooms for decades. >>> this jobs report, we thought the big news today would be the debt talks, but a stunning jobs report, gain of just 1
>>> big casino. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. leading off tonight, shooting the moon. president obama met today with congressional leaders to deal with the debt and he may have calmed the republican' bluff. the president is pushing a plan much bigger than before with $4 trillion. that's trillion with a t, spending cuts. major changes to medicare and to social security could be on the table as well. provided republicans agree to an increase in tax revenues. we may be watching president obama outmaneuvering his republican opponents, positioning himself as an even bigger deficit hawk than those on the right. it's a bold move, but will it work? >>> and what happens if no deal on the debt creeling is reached? is president obama's last best option to invoke the 14th amendment, to bypass congress and borrow beyond the debt limit? conservatives are usually quick to defend the constitution, but congressman tim scott of south carolina says that move might be worthy of, believe it or not, impeachment. >>> how's this for a fight? fox is going after
find himself in the unemployment line. it's that big of an issue. new polling in four key swing states tell the story. over 50% of voters in ohio, missouri and montana say that they will be less likely to vote for president obama if he makes any cuts. that's any cuts to medicare/medicaid benefits. the same holds true if the president signs off on any deal that cuts social security. president obama will never win reelection if he loses 50% of the voters in a state like ohio. now, there is really good reason -- no good reason anywhere to put entitlement cuts on the table with numbers like this. this is mind-boggling to the democratic caucus right now. i know, i spoke to a dozen of them tonight at a function here in washington. republicans. they will never take it as a tried-off for raising taxes on the rich. eric canter made that crystal clear this morning. >> i can tell you one thing, we are united as republicans to say now is not the time to raise taxes. i have talked with the speaker. he is not for increase in taxes. >> we are not for any net new revenues right now. what we want to fo
're going to have to push the big changes to deal with the deficit and debt, going to have to go down the road a bit and to the long term, maybe more than ten years? >> chris, i don't know about more than ten years, but certainly as you know, simpson boles, senator simpson and former chief of staff irskin boles, in their report they proposed making substantial cuts, raising revenues and across the board with all items of expansion. but they said in the near term, meaning the next year of so, we need to be very careful that we did not have the opposite effect by dampening down the struggling economy, obviously, as we saw today, which will decrease revenues and make the problem worse, not better. so in the short term, i agree with the bowles-simpson suggestion that we be very careful in the short term. there's no doubt, however, in the white house yesterday, or thursday -- yesterday -- there was a clear agreement that this was a serious, serious challenge that confronted us and it demanded at all of us try to come together and reach an agreement whereby we will certainly over the next 1
an agreement on the debt ceiling. >>> our top story it was touch and no go for a big waiting and wondering game to see if the weather could cooperate. about half an hour ago the "atlantis" was cleared for takeoff and off it went. take a look. >> america will continue the dream. >> this is the 135th and final space shuttle flight. with it nasa's 30-year shuttle program comes to an end. msnbc's tam ron hall host of "news nation" is live at cape canaveral. you were will watching the entire thing, tam ron. could you feel it? >> absolutely. you know, richard, before the launch, several of the veterans around here told me that you could actually feel the ground shake and ufld feel the tremor. i thought, these are urban myths that you hear. not only did ulf, i felt the tremendous morse. i felt it reverberate through my body. we are the conduit for those at home, i was moved to tears witnessing that four-person crew going up on the final launch of the shuttle program. it is incredible. "atlantis" has traveled other 115 million miles. it is the lightest in the fleet. it was built at a rapid pace because
ahead with a big deal maybe triggered in or staged later? >> i heard what the president said. i don't think business itself is bothered by the debt ceiling deal or no deal. i think what they may be bothered by is the uncertainty surrounding future tax regime that's going to be required to deal with these deficits. however, factoring into the negotiations what maybe somewhat helpful to the president in a slew of numbers that by and large are totally unhelpful is we're seeing the near term effects of cutting back in government spending. it cost jobs. not just in the government sector, but also in knock on private sector jobs as well. >> steve liesman with all the numbers and what that mean. thank you so much. good to see you, steve. republicans using the bad jobs report to scuttle any new taxes in a budget deal. joining me now virginia democratic senator mark warner a key member of the so-called gang of slight, slightly shrunk to five. still hoping senators working for months on ways to reduce the deficit. your quick reaction to the jobs report first and how it will effect the negotia
is a big point of concern here. nancy pelosi was very adamant yesterday, saying that the republican caucus would not accept any deal that would cut medicare, cut social security. and remember, they're most likely going to need democratic votes to get this across the finish line because we're expecting any type of deal to extend the nation's debt limit will get a lot of republican defection. >> we just got the two-minute warning. we saw some activity from one of the staffers coming out to put president obama's notes at that podium. so i want to keep you with me right now to talk about what can we expect with the president telling everyone they need to stay in town, not go home, there's going to be work over the weekend, and that they're going to be in session next week trying to hammer this out? >> they're going to be in session next week. and we also got word the house will stay in session july 18th. essentially what you're seeing now, thomas, is some of it's political show, obviously, when people have to work on sunday that sends a message to the american people, you're having your day of
>>> the big story today, job wars. good afternoon, i'm matt miller, in for dylan ratigan. more than 14 million americans still out of work, further complicating the drive for a long-term budget deal. can a deal on the debt quell the uncertainty some say hurts hiring or will new spending cuts, themselves, kill jobs and turn a bad economy worse? the labor department reports a net gain of only 18,000 jobs last month. just 18,000. that's even worse than may reese' vised 25,000. at this rate the economy needs to add nearly 14 million jobs in the next three years to get the rate down to 6%. that's 382,000 a month. and we've never seen that kind of growth ever. and don't forget, that 9.2% unemployment rate is deceiving when you add in the nearly 1 million this couraged workers who have given up hope and 8.6 million settling for part-time gigs, the rate balloons to more like 16%. republicans are already running with this report, heading into sunday's do or die debt meeting at the white house. get a listen. >> the stimulus spending binge, excessive government regulations, and our overwhelmin
bullet proof reputation? >> he has weathered major scandals. this is certainly a big one, and certainly one that has him more back on his heeling than anyone i can remember. >> hacking the phones of celebrities and politicians was one thing, but harvesting the grieving voice mails of the relatives lost if battle or children lost to violence triggered an expulsion that could not be retained. >> that was nbc's mike taibbi reporting. there are reports that the former editor, andy coulson has arrived at a london police station where he's expected to be questioned and possibly arrested in connection with the scandal. coulson is is the former communication chief for david cameron, who just announced a full public inquiry into the allegations. shares of news corp., the owner of news of the world are under pressure in the wake of the phone hacking scandal. how is the stock doing now that the paper is set to fold? for more on that and a preview of today's big jobs report, let's bring in carolyn shoeber lye in london. >> interesting share price reaction we saw. initially they were down by 4% in a
: that's the big question today. that is what everybody is asking. republicans today are seizing on the job numbers, reinforcing their very firm stance against raising taxes. they say by their calculation that's that cost jobs to raise taxes in an economy such as this one, causing ploishz to shed more jobs. >> nbc's mike viqueira will be joining us later in the hour. thanks, vic. just moments ago house speaker john boehner reacted to the new jobs numbers. take a listen. >> after hearing this morning's jobs report i'm sure the american people are still asking the question, where are the jobs? the stimulus spending binge, excessive government regulations, and our overwhelming debt continue to hold back job creators around our country. >> all right. let's bring in former clinton deputy press secretary jennifer palmieri, senior vp of communications at the central for american progress, and republican strategy of the boris epstein. thanks for joining us today. wish we had better news to talk about today. i want to start with this. first of all, your reaction, jennifer to what spoker b
unpublished research that indicates it might be simply big time peptide disorders. we don't know. i don't think it's as simple as trying to pass by the kentucky fried checken outlet without going in. this is a serious medical problem. we need to know more about it before we know how to treat it right. >> not that i disagree with you, governor but sometimes we reach for more complex reasons when the simpler reasons are in front of us. the tv remote control clicker and video games. this nation is filled with kids from 8 to 18 who never get off the couch. look at the advertisements for the real to life video games we have around us. that's all they play. they don't go out and play catch or run down the block to get milk. >> i think that's true. i didn't mean to say it had nothing to do with it but i think it's going to be a complex set of problems. it's going to defie easy political solutions. >> we'll move on to the budget. nine of ten states with the highest obesity led by mississippi, alabama and west virginia. they lead the nation in diabetes and high blood pressure. it's, you know, ob

the democrats and their negotiating position in the big debt ceiling fight in washington. whether or not the white house really just put social security and medicare on the table for cuts. that is all ahead. but we start tonight with a dramatic development in a life or death issue. it is literally about life and death. about the power of the government to kill people it is holding prisoner. but it's also about presidential politics, and who will be the republican party's nominee for president this year. there are two unquestionable truisms in coverage of republican presidential politics right now. one is that the prohibitive favorite to get the republican party's nomination, the front-runner so far out in front it is almost impossible to imagine anyone catching him is mitt romney. mitt romney seen here at the romney fundraiser today in london, england, of all places. mr. romney leads in all scientific international polls at this point, in all iowa polls, new hampshire polls, and in fundraiser. he is the front-runner and is front running alone. that is truism number one. truism num

that are showing the age, and you can imagine the big plan to spend the money for the upgrade of the infrastructure and something of long lasting benefits to be done over several years and not one-off stimulus, but takes place over five or ten years and you could spend a half a trillion or trillion dollars and if you did, that you might want to think about simultaneously fiscal restraint on the health care cost are the long-term deficit problems and make sure that the interest rates don't rise and offset the rises, but there is a real opportunity to put construction workers to work, and make the infrastructure stronger. >> when we talk about jobs, we tend to talk about congress a lot, but you report on the federal reserve, and it is the power over the economy that people often underestimate. so what if ben bernanke could get enough votes on the board, what could he do to help? >> well, the federal reserve is aggressive in trying to support the economy. they have the normal tools all employed. they cut the interest rates to zero and keep them there for a long time and if they do something more, it i
